Firefighters from several agencies battled a brush fire Thursday afternoon in south Jackson. It happened at the corner of Cooks Avenue and Puckett Road, just off McCluer Road.
The flames spread to nearby pastures and trees, and even charred the backyards of some homes. But fire officials say no houses were in danger.
About four to five acres were burned. Firemen are still monitoring the fire and putting out hot spots.
